HEARTT, DR. W. CHARLES P.Private
AgeLlewellyn's Company
Mississippi

Dr. William Charles P. Heartt came to Texas as a member of Captain Peacock's Company, and fought with it at Bexar; his name also appears on Pittman's muster roll for Llewellyn's Company, with Johnson and Grant.

Wm. Brenan, who escaped the massacre, certified that his belief was that Dr. Heartt was killed at San Patricio [on Feb. 27, 1836.] James McGloin's statement is to the same effect. [See Grand Gulf Advertiser, May 5, 1836, Winston Quarterly, XXI, p. 53.] His donation certificate was issued as "killed at Goliad," by special act of legislature, approved Feb. 13, 1858, [Gammell's Laws of Texas, IV, 710.]

[Ed: By 1939 Davenport concluded this man's name was Dr. Charles P. Heartt, killed with Dr. James Grant at Agua Dulce, March 2, 1836. The other doctor with Johnson and Grant, Dr. William M. W. Hort, appears to be the one who was at Bexar. See Davenport 1939, pp.28-29 (this Appendix A) and Note  4 .]
 

HEATH, EBENEZER SMITHFirst Sergeant
AgePettus' Company
Massachusetts

On all the extant rosters of Captain Pettus' Company except the Land Office copy of the muster rolls, Ebenezer S. Heath is rated as its first sergeant. He was one of the original members of Morris', or Cooke's, Company of New Orleans Grays, and remained with it through all of its changes of command. He personally signed the Convention Memorial at Refugio, about February 5, 1836, and his signature there appears in full as Ebenezer Smith Heath.

Due to the fact that Captain Pettus' Company was not mustered on Feb. 29, 1836, with the other companies of Fannin's Command (except King's, which was mustered on March 1st,)
